Data Device Corp. (DDC) in Bohemia, N.Y., is introducing the BU-67301B Total-AceXtreme compact MIL-STD- 1553 interface with transformers inside one 16-by-16-millimeter package for mission computers, displays, data recorders, and many other embedded applications. The device is packaged to enable avionics systems designers to save board space and simplify 1553 design and layout, DDC officials say.
The BU-67301B has a dual-redundant MIL-STD-1553 channel configurable in bus controller or multi-remote terminal modes, each with a concurrent bus monitor that captures data in the IRIG-106 Chapter 10 format. The device has eight digital discrete I/O, an IRIG-B input, and MIL-STD-1760 support, as well as a user-selectable PCI or generic processor interface to enable engineers to use one part for several applications. The part also incorporates a DMA engine, two megabits (64K X 36) of RAM solid-state memory, and 12.5-nanosecond access time. The databus interface, which offers low power consumption that creates low amounts of heat, is designed to replace two transceivers, two transformers, MIL-STD-1553 protocol core, and memory.
